Ask Aunt Chelsea

Dear Aunt Chelsea: Our son is ten (almost eleven, as he constantly reminds us) and wants to go a haunted house attraction that advertises itself as “blood-curdling.” He says he knows it’s all an act, but we’re both worried that it might be too intense, or just plain unhealthy, for someone of his age. I […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Week of Aug. 28, 2014

Dear Aunt Chelsea: I quit drinking and drugging after my Freshman year, and I’ve got over four months clean and sober in a 12-step program. I know some cool students in AA, so temptation once I’m back on campus and going to parties again isn’t an issue. The issue is my girlfriend, who was so impressed […]

Dear Aunt Chelsea: My parents will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary in a few weeks. I’ve been told (several times) that they don’t want any surprises: parties, presents, vacation cruises…nothing. As an only child, isn’t it my obligation to do something? They’re the only couple in my entire family who is still together (and alive!), […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, July 3, 2014

Dear Aunt Chelsea: I’ve lived in Chelsea for almost 15 years, and this has never happened to me before. Last week, I received a ticket in the mail for illegal dumping of garbage in our public streets. The notice was created by a public works employee. It was issued on a date and time when […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Week of June 19, 2014

Dear Readers: Thanks so much for your cards and letters of concern, while I’ve been recuperating from knee surgery (at the Fire Island time share of my favorite nephew, Scotty). Rest assured, I’m tired of resting — and will be back as of our July 3 edition. In the meantime, our Pride issue is the […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, March 12, 2014

Dear Aunt Chelsea, I’m in a bind. Two old friends are getting married and I just received the invitation for me and a guest. The problem is, I’m in a very serious triad relationship. How do I decide who to take? Would it be tacky of me to request plus one more? Triple Millennial Player […]

Dear Readers: Like the whimsical sight of a pebble mischievously thrown into a lake brimming with troubled waters, I take great pleasure in witnessing the ripple effect of my efforts. Ever since Chelsea Now’s tough but fair editor encouraged me to slip the surly bonds of early retirement to share my special brand of wisdom, […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Feb. 12, 2014

Dear Aunt Chelsea,  I have met a man who is wonderful. He’s funny, intelligent, kind and good-looking…and we have become fast friends. Lately things have deepened between us. I’m starting to feel like one of these days, meeting for our usual dinner and drinks may lead to something more. Part of me would like to […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Jan. 29, 2014

Dear Readers: Well, the ink on my Airbnb contract is dry —obligating me to vacate my Chelsea apartment, so some lucky stiff from Denver can use these humble digs as a flop house, between all the Big Game activities…so here’s one from the archives to keep you occupied until our February 12 issue (a special […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Jan. 15, 2014

Dear Aunt Chelsea: I am officially in Hookup Heaven! I met this incredible guy at my friend’s party on New Year’s Eve, and we had this instant connection — and it lasted all the way into 2014, if you know what I mean! The only problem is, now that it’s been two weeks since that […]
